Well “new” series started very well, with somewhat surprising FFA win with 5x 1st (yes it was cross country with free rush).
Trial on other hand … 3x 3rd … its a total mess of pushing, showing and wallriding, I was so tempted to just drop out and search for another round.

Hope this is of any help to someone, take care everyone and as always … have fun :), bb


Thanks El Barto. That was helpful.

Trial was ironically the easiest have completed in ages. The AI seemed awful.

The “Threading the Needle” skills on the Morgan took me ages. I ended up banging two cars together in a car park and driving through them to get the 5 skills!

Tip (I learned form this forum a few weeks ago): Go into solo mode. Greatly increases traffic and makes it super easy to do stuff like this. I just went into solo mode and drove the wrong way down the interstate, took me maybe 2 minutes.

Thanks El Barto. That was very helpful and as usual your Tunes worked a charm.

Are you and Max going to do this for FH5 when it releases?


Ferrari F40 Competizione, tune - 149 006 868

3 x 1st thanks el barto

Thank you and you’re all welcome.

I still have to press the Pre-order button on FH5 and when it comes to that, I surely won’t stop tuning cars :slight_smile:

I ran the trial again yesterday morning (with 3x1st) and this time I got low level players that could actually drive clean and also preform, in retrospect to first try hosting high level pro wallriders / rammers. Go figure.

I also have to thank you! That link you posted for the Summer Specials saved me a lot of trial and error in figuring out which car to use. I haven’t done the race yet but I’m tuning an Abarth 124 just from reading the comment thread. It’s my favorite car in the game just to drive around in summer and pretend it’s mine anyway.

Hey I am lost with what Forza is and what I am even doing driving around hitting things?
I am coming from 20+ yrs of PS driving games and just dumped Sony as a company , Greedy Uncaring to their customers, ignoring anything but a AAA $

So I grabbed one of these XBoxes with GamePass Ult. WOW!! I’ve had wrong Console company

I love and understand Forza 7 (way better game than GT6 and GTS) but I am at a loss in this racing game?
What am I suppose to do, is there a starting line.
I’m just driving around lost destroying things Kinda fun but boring.\I’m missing the whole thing as everyone seems to love this game.
Please put me on a path if you can.

Initially you have to get through 4 seasons by gaining influence. There should be a race icon on the map and pr stunts. There was another thread recently with some more information… . here.

I hope this helps you to do the challenges

For some reason I always have a hard time finding the actual festival stage area in that photo challenge. Did by just just cruising slowly around the festival area taking pictures.

Doing the Morgan 3 Wheeler stuff, I learned it is now my favorite drift car. Just using the first tune I found with the word drift in it, I achieved a 3 star drift zone for the first time.

The seasonal PR stunts in Summer are just as easy as the Winter ones were hard. I did all three on the first try using my 599xxxe with the same tune I use just for the highway speed trap (no downforce and high speed gearing).

Loved getting a Type 35c (and TR7) for Super 7 as much as I was disappointed in the Forzathon Shop cars. I already own both so it was easy to see what the AH prices were. Naw I’m not going to waste my points on that.

Super easy trial and finally got that shirt. Just want the jacket now. Love the Q50 but usually use it for rallying. Was good to prepare a new one and win some road races. It’s funny watching people hit the walls thinking it’s faster.

Even though there is no new content and this is the start of the FH4 “mixtape” playlists going forward I strangely enjoyed the Summer Season of Update 38.

Whether it was because there was no pressure in terms of getting new cars or content or with FH5 on the horizon the sun is setting on FH4.

I was going to bail out on this season given FH5 is only 3 months away (i.e either not complete 100 per cent of it or just do bits of it) but I think I might stick with it certainly for the rest of the playlist and maybe even updates 39 and 40.
